If you love fashion and you’re researching clothing franchise business opportunities as a way to become more involved in the fashion industry, you might be pleasantly surprised to learn how easy it is to convert your passion for fashion into a thriving small business with Apricot Lane. We believe our franchise opportunity is the very best on the fashion scene, and we’ve made sure our business model includes thorough franchisee training and support. The process of becoming an Apricot Lane boutique owner is straightforward and transparent, making it simple for qualified individuals to become part of our brand family. Let’s take a quick look at some of the steps a fashion-passionate entrepreneur will take to turn a love of stylish clothes and accessories into a rewarding career.
Schedule an Introductory Call
The first thing you’ll do is reach out via a phone call to speak to our Franchise Development Ambassador. During this 30 to 45-minute call, we’ll get to know each other, as we review with you the initial investment, general store operations, and support resources available to all our franchisees, among other topics. We’ll also answer any questions you may have about clothing franchise business opportunities, and we’ll ask you a few, too, to make sure we’re a good fit.
Shortly after this preliminary call, you’ll begin to receive a series of informative emails that will reinforce our initial discussion, as well as provide you with additional information on subjects such as training, location, store features, bookkeeping, and much more!
Submit a Financial Application
We’ll ask you to complete and return our Request for Consideration financial application that you’ll find at the bottom of each of our informative emails. Once we’ve made sure you have the resources to open one of our boutiques, you’ll speak with our founder, Ken Petersen, who will share with you his vision for our brand and his expert philosophy about franchising. He’ll make sure to answer any questions you may have about clothing franchise business opportunities, too. Ken, like all of us at Apricot Lane, wants to make sure you have as much information as possible before making your investment with us.
We’ll Visit Your Market
We believe our brand is only as successful as each of our franchisees, which is why we place such an emphasis on making sure there’s a good fit between us and our boutique owners. That’s why we’ll come out to meet you, in your market, at our own expense. We’ll send our real estate expert, or our president of retail, or even our founder Ken himself, to meet with you, research location opportunities, and schedule appointments with leasing agents. We’ll tour properties together and help you narrow down your choices. Location is everything, and we want to be sure you’re making the most of your market and its demographics.
We Love Awarding Clothing Franchise Business Opportunities
After this important visit, we’ll meet internally with our team to review everything we have learned about you and your market and, if we believe the fit is right, we’ll award you your franchise. Now, the real fun begins! You’ll spend 120 days training with us for ownership, will begin to curate your beautiful new boutique, choosing from hundreds of our stylish and trendy lines, and preparing to live your life as a business owner. Your passion for fashion has now turned into a career you can be proud of.
